About the neighbourhood
Paje has one of the best beaches in Zanzibar with palm lined, white powder sand and a tropical lagoon enclosed by a coral reef about a kilometre away. You can walk to the reef and you will see local spear fishermen hunting squid, octopus and brightly coloured reef fish. There are no sea urchins and no strong currents at high tide. The beach is gently sloping so it is perfect for swimming for up to twelve hours each day. There are some local hotels along the beach serving food, cocktails, beers, freshly squeezed juice etc all day long. The rare red colobus monkey as well as the tropical and mangrove forests canbe seen at Jozani National Park, only 10 minutes away. Google Paje and see what you find.
